Liliana Ovalle

Liliana is a Research Fellow at the Interaction Research Studio. She has worked across various research projects focusing on the development and production of research prototypes and design-led methodologies. She is currently undertaking a PhD by practice with the working title 'Material Dialogues: Ludic engagement with indigenous communities through craft practices', funded by the AHRC Design Star Scheme. 

Liliana also runs her own practice working on product and furniture design. Her personal work has been selected for international exhibitions including Gallery Libby Sellers, MAXXI Museum and Museo Poldi Pezzoli. Some of her projects are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and Centre National des Arts Plastiques in France.
